Don’t Let New Media Give You Writer’s Block

As we have seen, there has been a significant rise in the popularity of ebooks for readers but a recent article has suggested they could be a revolution for budding writers too. 

Bill Rogers initially tried to get his stories published through print-based publishers but found many stumbling blocks so he decided to go it alone and publish them himself as ebooks. He is now making enough wage to live on (even without his pension) all through embracing new technology.
Advantages of publishing through e-books

While Rogers stated one disadvantage of e-books is that you cannot receive nominations for ‘conventional literary awards’ and that your proof-reading MUST be up to scratch, there are advantages that far outweigh the disadvantages:


  • You can eliminate the cost of printing>
  • You can publish almost immediately rather than waiting 18 months for a printed one
  • Your e-book can reach the far corners of the globe at the click of a button
  • You can receive instant feedback
  • You can link readers to your other works instantly

The increased popularity of e-books means you can now reach audiences further afield with your work as an ebook than you ever could with a printed one.
